The Association for Women’s Rights in Development Forum will take place in Istanbul in April. It will be an opportunity for women working in international development to come together to strategize, network, celebrate, and learn from each other. A mix of activists, academics and people from programmes for women will hear presentations and engage in dialogues around this year’s theme which is the impact of economic power on women.
